This was probably a custom made item.

We've examined both doggies carefully with a high power loupe, and they appear to be 14k. No, we're not going to test them...

diameter 6; height 2 3/8 inches, weight 8.42 Troy ounces, no monogram, some light scratches to interior (see second enlargement) but fine overall condition, maker Herman Glendenning.

Not a common form, this five lobed bowl is deceptively simple but devilishly difficult to make. Each section would have been "set in pitch" and hammered, keeping the line straight but gently increasing in height as it approached the rim. Then five pieces of molding were applied over the edge and soldered... Click for details

height 7 1/8 inches, weight 5.52 Troy ounces, fine condition, monogrammed as shown in third enlargement.

This mark is commonly given to Saunders Pitman, but we are not so certain that it is his. For example, though the Met attributes a cream jug in their collection (accession number 33.120.311) to Saunders, some might consider this attribution to be problematic, since he'd been dead for a good solid forty years when it was made.

Other reasonable possibilities would include John K.... Click for details

Silver : Sterling : Flatware

A full figure nude in the manner of "Bacchante," a design that offended the sensibilities of turn of the 20th century Bostonians, Watson's companion "Phoebe" (1895) likewise expresses the freedoms of style and subject found in the Art Nouveau mode.

The figure is surrounded by considerable imagery including wheat, a grape cluster, a shell, and clouds, this last details perhaps derivative of her mythological identity as a Titan associated with light.

He seems to have found much success there, and opened branch locations in Danville and Spencer in the mid-to-late 1880s. He moved on to Kansas City and then St. Louis late in life, and passed away in 1897 or so. This... Click for details
